The protagonist of Alba is a boy weakened by severe illness. The short cleverly combines film and animation to better portray the two different but coexisting realms of fantasy and reality. The fantastic adventures a young hero are entwined with the somber reality of the hospital wards. To defeat the disease, represented by an evil dragon, the boy transforms into a dauntless knight in shining armor – shining like the sun rising from the misty dawn that he sees when reunited with his beloved mother.
